A Celtic Hymn to Love

With images from Scotland
May the path meet you.
May the wind always blow at your back and the rain fall soft on your fields.
And until we meet again, may the Future smile on you constantly.
May you live as long as you want and may you always be able to live fully.
Always remember to forget the things that made you sad, but never forget to remember the ones that made you happy.
Always remember to forget the friends who turned out to be false, but never forget to remember those who remained faithful.
Always remember to forget about the problems that have already passed, but never forget to remember the good things of each day.
May the saddest day in your future be no worse than the happiest day in your past.
May the roof never fall on you and may the friends gathered under it never leave.
May you always have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and may the way always open at your door.

May you always have warm words in a cold evening, a full moon in a dark night, and may the way always open at your

May you live a hundred years, with an extra year to repent.
May the Future keep you in its “hands” and don’t squeeze its fingers too much.
May your neighbors respect you, problems leave you, your friends accompany you, and your health does not fail you.
And may the fate of the Celtic hills embrace you.
May you never regret being born.
May your conscience be light and your heart heavy with friendship and love.
May good luck pursue you, and each day and night you have walls against the wind, a roof from the rain, drinks by the fire, laughter that comforts those you love, and that your heart may be filled with everything you desire.
May you see your children’s children, may your misfortune be brief and leave you rich with longing. May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
May you have many years of life, pursuing Friendship, Solidarity, and Peace among all Human Beings…
…and so be it every year, forever!
